2019 iTHINK Solutions Tour

Sept 7th thru Oct 16

40 Days and 40 Nights

2019 iTHINK Solutions Tour (ST) is an integral part of a national public safety and quality of life effort focusing on saving lives and restoring families and communities by effectively addressing many of America’s decades-old issues. The tour visited 10 states and 13 cities gathering primary data on the ground, while identifying individuals, organizations, and companies to implement and administer iTHINK Solutions. iTHINK Solutions are practical, viable, result driven, and location-based solutions that address complex issues from the inside out. The issues at the forefront are:

 

  • Senseless Violence  

  • Homelessness         

  • Drugs                         

  • Poverty                     

  • Food Deserts             

  • Access to Affordable Housing

  • Connective Workforce Development

  • Community-Based Economic Development   

 

ST participants and supporters are American citizens from various walks of life and states that believe in their community, city, and most of all the human race. Each participant brings a unique and valuable perspective through personal experience as it relates to the issues. Tour participants will recruit like-minded individuals, organizations, and companies that have the desire, heart, courage, and a body of work that demonstrates their commitment to tackling these complex issues. 

 

The tour kicked-off Sept 7, 2019 in Dallas, TX  and ended in Dallas, TX  visiting the following cities and states: 

 

  • Los Angeles, California

  • San Francisco, California

  • Oakland, California 

  • St. Louis, Missouri 

  • Chicago, Illinois

  • Detroit, Michigan 

  • Cincinnati, Ohio 

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Baltimore, Maryland

  • Atlanta, Georgia 

  • Memphis, Tennessee

  • Houston, Texas

  • Dallas, Texas  

 

America has spent trillions waging  war on its most complex issues such as poverty, drugs, homelessness, and violence along with trillions more of  taxpayers dollars on food insecurity, workforce development, and affordable housing, seemingly losing in each category. A productive Tour captured the necessary data to deliver effective solutions, tools, and resources to create change in participating cities, while assisting with lessening the burden of government and reducing waste and fraud of taxpayers dollars.

Public Safety and Quality of Life

F.A.M.I.L.Y.

Forgiving All Missteps Investing Love Yearlong (FAMILY) is an innovative, practical, data-driven, and viable solution designed by iTHINK Solutions to significantly reduce chronic and circumstancial homelessness. FAMILY offers a 100% home ownership guarantee upon successful completion of the solution. FAMILY is designed to be completed within a 4 year time period regardless of the reasons for homelessness.

Homelessness and Quality of Life

R.A.D.I.C.A.L.

Removing All Drugs Inside Communities Annihilating Lives (RADICAL) is a community-controlled measure to replace drugs with opportunities.  Instead of just arresting and incarcerating, RADICAL provides a divergence program that will restore families if completed. Drugs that must be extracted in order for communities to thrive include: crack, heroin, opioids, and syrup - but not limited to those, of course. 
 

Drug-Free Communities 

P.R.O.

Providing Real Opportunities (PRO) is a location-based workforce development training program for young adults in hard-to-reach and underserved areas in select American cities. Created with the purpose of minimizing barriers to economic success for various demographics, PRO intends to leverage the skills and knowledge of the surrounding community experts to ensure local needs are met and mentored in a culturally aware, transparent, and effective way.

Connective Workforce Development

P.T.I.

Pathways To Independence (PTI) provides a series of business training courses, along with hands-on mentoring to new and previously established small, local business owners, which, if completed, will allow participating trainees to become eligible for microfinance support as either start-up capital and/or capacity- building funds.
 

Community-Based Economic Development

MY BACKYARD 

MY BACKYARD is a neighborhood ownership stabilization program pilot focusing on local ownership and rental affordability for existing residents. MY BACKYARD partners will include local municipalities, nonprofits, and private resources.

MY BACKYARD will work in conjunction with PRO to promote home ownership for participants.  

Partnerships in Affordable Housing

MY GROCERY STORE

MY GROCERY STORE focuses on attracting a specific number of shopping partners that live within an immediate geographical location. The shopping partners are able to receive monthly rewards based on profits and agreed shrinkage numbers.

Youth of the shopping partners will be provided business opportunities with USDA and its partners.
